Teacher - Grade 7/8 English / Grade 7 Bible
Serving WCS Since: 2002
Terry was born and raised in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, on the shores of Lake Michigan. After attending Sheboygan Christian School and Sheboygan County Christian High School, she graduated from Dordt College in Iowa, earning her BA in elementary education with a minor in language arts. When offered a job at Whitinsville Christian School, Terry thought it would be an adventure to live in the East for a couple of years. However, she met Greg Ebbeling shortly after moving to Whitinsville, and the two were married the following November--and here they are 27 years later! Terry taught fourth grade for two years at WCS; fifth grade for two years at Plymouth Christian Academy in Plymouth, Michigan; and sixth grade for three years at Douglas Middle School. She then stayed at home with her three children--Kellsie, Jodi, and Scott--for the next twelve years. When the middle school English position at WCS opened up in 2002, the position was exactly what Terry wanted and the timing was right for her family, so she applied for the position and was hired as the English teacher in the middle school. She has been enjoying her work at WCS ever since. Terry finds her work with students in the middle grades to be rewarding. She believes that her main role in the classroom is to help students become competent writers and enthusiastic readers--for life!
